Fans gather to watch final episode of Neighbours

STORY: A long-time fan of the show, Ian, travelled from London and had visited the set before coming to Federation Square to watch the finale.

“It means a great deal to me and so I'm very happy to be here in Melbourne to see the last episode,” he said.

A fixture of the small screen in Australia since 1985 and in Britain since 1986, the cameras stopped rolling on the fictional Ramsay Street and its families after the main financial backer, British free-to-air broadcaster Channel 5, cut the series from its schedule to make way for local content.
